Copied from my post in the previous iPhone Myst thread.

I don't know if this is a bug or my being rubbish at solving the puzzle, but I'm having a problem in the underground rail car thing in Selenic. This puzzle was the one that had me stumped the longest the first time I played, and it's giving me even more trouble now. It's one of the very few puzzles in all the Myst games that I don't remember the solution for, and I want to solve it if I can, but I'm becoming increasingly certain that it's impossible for me to do so, and must be a bug.

This is happening: I'm in the car, and simply don't have anywhere I can go. I've mapped out my possible choices, and as you can see, there aren't many.



If you know how to solve the puzzle, that should make sense. Unless I'm getting it totally wrong. I'm positive that the map is correct. So my question to those of you who know the solution to this maze is, am I missing some vital element of solving the puzzle, or is it broken?

Thanks to Mystdee for her help so far!

Your on the right lines, figure out what noises point you in which direction, if you don't get a noise when you stop at a node, you've gone the wrong way and need to double back.

IIRC this means a lot of twoing and frowing in the first instance, and also try to keep an eye on your direction when you headed into a node as well, as its mega confusing if you forget.

Pen and paper needed (or the top of the metro if your on public transport ;) )

Good Luck

Thanks for the response, but if you take a look at the map I linked to you'll see that it isn't that simple, for some reason. All the crosses represent directions I can't go. Sadly there is no way out of these dead ends.

Edit: If the image doesn't load, try this:

When I played the RealMyst version at Gametap, I remember having troubles
even if I had the solution.

[spoiler]Make a list of the 14 steps and then strike off every steps as you go along.[/spoiler]

Send me your solution in a PM so I can double check it.(no graphics please)

I'm pretty sure this is a bug.
I'm also stuck over there!

I am not trying to argue with you, and I respect your frustration, but I have to say I disagree, I believe you are just making a series of wrong moves. . . . Don't see how you could be starting from a different place, as you say. . :?

The arrows and buttons are sometimes hard to touch, and it's easy to hit the wrong one sometimes, so perhaps you have mistakenly gone too far or the wrong way with them . . . . . the correct solution gets me there every time and I have been there MANY times. Have you checked the excellent hints guide in the game?. . . maybe there is something there that will help you. There are different levels of hints in there to avoid unwanted spoilers. If you have looked at all that, and still truly think you have hit a bug not allowing you to get through, then perhaps you need to use the correct solution rather than relying on the sounds from the beginning of the maze runner trip as a "work around" . . . . It always works for me. I don't know what else to suggest.

The following spoiler tags contain that correct solution, if you don't want to see it then don't go there!

[spoiler=WARNING Solution contained within] when you first sit in the driver's seat you need to use the forward button to get to the tracks then the car is already facing the correct first direction which is North. . . . including this first one the correct directions are as follows:

N - W - N - E - E - S - S - W - SW - W - NW - NE - N - SE [/spoiler]

I have the same problem to reproduce get in sub maze have red page. go N, W, N, E, E, S, S, then W not SE screen will go straight W and will say your facing SW and flash 8 to 10 times. after this the only directions you can go are the ones Tutelary has drawn out. i am a long time player of this game and made out one wrong turn then restart to see if i could reporduce the bug and yes i can.
